Dear Friend,
Dont worry you will get well soon. I feel Homeopathy can help you faster in this condition, take medicne Arnica 30, 4 Pills every 2 hourly for 4 days.Also take enough rest for just four days.
still if u are not better take an x ray of right knee and consult a ortho doctor for opinion.
But i strongly feel Homeopathic medicine Arnica 30 will help you.Arnica will cure any internal injury and pain caused due to fall.
Thank you

Hi Welcome to HCM.
It looks like you have ligament tear in the knee joint. Knee joints are weight bearing joints, any injury to them should not be taken lightly. If not treated properly, over a period of time it may cause more trouble. I suggest you consult an orthopedic surgeon right away.

Hello Doctor, My dad 58 is suffering from bone tb in cervical region (C5,C6,C7), he developed weakness in legs and coudnt walk w/o support. Initially he was treated by ortho who put him on 4 drug ATT and performed a minor operation of draining pus but his condition worsened after operation (paraplegic Complete motor and sensory loss in legs, no sense of bladder ) and was refrred to a neurosurgeon. He was operated again and decompression and bone grafting was performed, after one month also his condition did not improve and an MRI was taken again. Doctor said that there is a degeneration in the vertebrae which forms lower part of the graft and the screws were displaced from their position and were causing compression of spinal cord. He was again operated and the graft was removed(by a different doctor). Doctor said that due to multiple operations he has become weak and said that will keep him under observation for sometime and if required operation can be performed after a month. Meanwhile my dad has problem swollowing which was not there after 2 previous operations. He was put on complete bed rest by the previous 2 doctors but this doctor makes him sit for 5 min daily and has also said that will try to make him sit on wheel chair in some days. My question: Is my dad being treated the right way?
